  • Hardcore Will Never Die 380 (Maynor Guestmix) (2021)

    Hardcore will never die. Now that's a statement and a half, right? There will be a time when Hardcore will die, but that's probably not in our lifetime. Maybe in 3088 people will get bored of Hardcore music and decide to jump ship to bombcore. Or whatever the people in the future listen to. But for now Hardcore is much alive and kicking, and if you have been on Soundcloud, you must have been following this page, maintained by DJ ECZ, who is behind the successful podcast series called 'Hardcore Will Never Die', and for the 380th edition he played a guest mix made by Dutch newcomer Maynor. If you have been a fan of early Hardcore being revamped by upcoming artists such as Maynor, Casketkrusher and more, you will immediately know who Maynor is and what he's capable of. As EZC mentions during the intro, he comes from the birthplace of Hardcore, The Netherlands. But not just the fact that he's from The Netherlands is important, it's also the fact that he has got the skills to produce Hardcore anthems in the 20s with that distinctive sound of the 90s. His records are certainly influenced by the 90s, that's for damn sure! You can tell that he has a lot of inspiration from well known songs from the early Hardcore days. So many memorable details in each song. If this doesn't tickle your early (Happy) Hardcore bone, nothing will. Maynor knows how to capture the 90s in his songs, and in this 65 minute long guest mix he proves that he's at the top of the leader board. He shows us all how these forgotten sounds are to be recaptured and turned into glorious time capsule songs (=songs that have got this newer vibe but yet older style surrounding it). Now you are interested, I've tickled your interest bone, right? So, let me show you what Maynor played! Maynor - My Beat Maynor - Back To The UK Maynor - The Music Maynor - Freaky Maynor - The Future Maynor - Burning Floor Maynor - A Night Like This Maynor - Burning Acid Maynor - Fly High Try Casketkrusher - Break This Motherfucker! (Maynor Remix) Maynor - Get Up & Party Maynor - If I Could ... Maynor - Get Busy Maynor - Panic Casketkrusher - Get Crazy! (Maynor Remix) Maynor - French Kicks, Licks & Dicks Maynor - Why? When you hear this mix for the first time, your mind is blown into smithereens. You don't know what hit you. But slowly you are grasping the fact that you have just discovered a very fine Dutch Hardcore producer, and that his tunes are solid as a rock, and you are sitting there with a semi. Nothing to be ashamed about, I'm currently having the same feeling as you do. All jokes aside, this is a solid mix. With a lot of excellent (*new*) tunes. And you can hear the influences clearly: he might have had a lot of influences when producing these records, but as familiar as they sound, he still made the tracks his own, and made them work. A lot of Happy Hardcore and 'normal' Hardcore vibes. Glorious, if you ask me. I do love this mix a lot. This has got everything I wanted to hear. The old vibes in a new jacket. As familiar as these sound, they are brand new. And that's exciting too, as it makes me crave for more. The new 'old' sound really appeals to me, and when I close my eyes, I am back in my bedroom in Heerlen (The Netherlands), and I'm 16 again. Raving and stomping so hard on the floor that my parents are shouting to me to turn this 'fucking music DOWN'. Oh, that's just a glorious feeling. A fantastic mix. And 'Why?' has to be the best. Why? Well, that's why!

  • Marc Acardipane | HARD DANCE NYC: Spinoff Gabber (2019)

    Been off for a few days, and now I've come back, and there's a lot of new music I wanted, no needed to share with you all. One of the first of this week has to be a set by the Godfather of Hardcore, Marc Acardipane a.k.a the Mover a.k.a PCP a.k.a the million aliases he has had over the years. The legend himself was asked to play at the Hard Dance NYC back in 2019, and he smashed it. But would you expect anything else from the Godfather himself? The one who has given us so many memorable anthems since the early 90s up until 2021? This man does not need an introduction, but if you are questioning who he is, you might need to indulge yourself into his history, and the best thing to do, is to listen to Mescalinum United's 'We Have Arrived' song. To many the first ever Hardcore track (hence why he has got the nickname Godfather for a reason), but if you aren't aware of this track, you might know a few others he has played during this set. Why? Well, good question: this set is packed with most of his own stuff. Sometimes you just want to go back to your roots, back to what made you the person you are. Hearing the tunes from the 90s is what makes me feel young again, but not only that, but also the video of this set in NYC takes me back to the 90s: no mobile phones, and 'simplistic' lights. No fancy stuff, nothing too dramatic. That's how it was back in the 90s. You wouldn't believe it, but it's the truth. The gabbers from the 90s were happy with just a few strobes, simple lights, and that's it. Oh, and of course big ass speakers. Who goes to a rave that has a shitty speaker system? Just pure rave and nothing else. There's nothing that would make me happier. And the tunes, are they good? Hell yeah! See for yourself! Marc Acardipane - Today Tomorrow Forever White Breaks - White Line (A1) Moby - Thousand Ace The Space feat Mr. Shabazz - 9 Is A Classic Mescalinum United - We Have Arrived Rave Creator feat Cypher - Immortal Miro - Purple Moon Pilldriver - Doin' Drugs Marshall Masters - Stereo Murder Miro - Shining E-Man - Bass Machine w/ Nasty Django & DJ Cirillo - Deal Wit' Beats Turbulence - Disaster Area Dr. Macabre - Poltergeist Rave Creator - A New Mind (Cold Rush Phuture Mix) E-Man - Under My Command Rave Creator - Into Sound (Marshall Masters Remix) w/ The Mover & Rave Creator - O.K. Bassquake The Mover & Rave Creator - Atmos-fear Steve Shit - Havin' Sex Marshall Masters feat Nasty Django - Hustler For Life (Live At Club X) Darrien Kelly feat The Unknown MC - The People Want More (Original Edit) w/ 6-Pack - Drunken Piece Of Shit (Mix 1) w/ Masters Of Rave - Are You With Me (Energie Hallen Mix) w/ Masters Of Ceremony - Hardcore To Da Bone w/ Aphex Twin - Come To Daddy (Pappy Mix) w/ Moby - Feeling So Real (Original Mix) w/ Neophyte - Get This Motherfucker Inferno Bros - Slaves To The Rave (PCP Mix) T.urbulence - 6 Million Ways To Die Beethoven - Greatest Works Part 1 (Classic Planet Core Drum & Bass Version) If you look at this tracklist and do not underline the significance of these tracks, are you Hardcore bro? Do you even lift? Do you hakkuh or not? Come on. If this doesn't tickle you whatsoever, you can consider yourself a newbie, or just not Hardcore enough. Trust me, these are the classics, these songs made Hardcore the way it is! There are just too many awesome records to choose from, but I had to pick just tree that I wanted to hear over and over again, and if you dislike my decision, leave a comment below, and I won't read it. So the three I've chosen are as follows: Miro - 'Purple Moon'. This is just such a Trancy sounding Hardcore anthem. Miro was ahead of its time. Then I would go for Darrien Kelly feat The Unknown MC's 'The People Want More', just because it was released around the time I started raving, and I heard it everywhere. And lastly the shock of a century: Moby's 'Feeling So Real'. A true underrated rave classic! Fuck it, let's say 'Stereo Murder' is the ultimate dancefloor killer. Marc did his best to get the crowd moving, and you can see them moving during his set. Even singing along when needed. But they are having a great time, like myself back in 1998 when I saw Marc live at Mysteryland 1998 outdoor. The crowd are loving it, and so am I. You can watch the set on Youtube or listen to it on Soundcloud, whatever floats your boat. I think that this is yet another epic set by Marc, only slightly ruined by the last record that went on a bit too long. It's a quirky way to end your set, but I would have rather heard another classic from the man behind the most influential label ever! Worth checking out, right?

  • Vertile @ Supremacy 2021

    I had another few reviews planned, but stumbled upon this set by Vertile. And as you all know, I am a huge fan of Vertile since I heard him for the first time back in 2020. So I literally dropped all the other mixes aside, and jumped on this set, which was only recorded a few months ago, at Supremacy 2021. When raving was still OK. Before it all went tits up in The Netherlands, and the whole dance scene came to yet another screeching halt. Maybe that's what they need to do in 2022: have one month of parties only, and lockdown for the rest of the year. 31 days, 21438y897234 parties all over The Netherlands. And Vertile playing at most of them. And to start Supremacy 2021 with this legend must have been a great experience. So many happy faces on the dancefloor, all raising their hands in the air for Vertile... that's my heaven on earth. Of course he wasn't the only one at this event, here are some names you might be interested in: Radical Redemption, Warface vs D-Sturb, Rebelion, Delete, Act Of Rage, E-Force, The Gang Live (Rooler & Sickmode), D-Fence, Killshot, Rejecta, Ncrypta, Crypsis, Digital Punk, Sub Sonic, Bloodlust, and MC Nolz. A good and decent line up, don't you think? His productions have amazed me from the first moment I've heard them. They have been top notch, and highly entertaining. For me Vertile's music is the right music to get me in the mood. And I'm not the only one who thinks this way: a lot of positive comments on Youtube, and people describing him as a future talent..To me he's the biggest in the Rawstyle scene, Of course he had to be booked for Supremacy. And even though the whole area wasn't filled to the brim yet, he got those who were there dancing. He gave them the boost they needed . A lot, and I do mean a lot of hands are thrown into the air! And I wish I was there. Now you are hoping to find the tracklist to this set here, right? Well, voila! Vertile - Together We Grow Rebelion - Echoes (Vertile Remix) Vertile & Demi Kanon - How We Do It Aversion - Face Of Chaos Vertile - On My Own Vertile - Ain't Nobodi Vertile - Eyes Closed (Kick Edit) Adaro & Vertile - Walk With Me Vertile - Eyes Open Endymion & The Viper feat Feral Is Kinky - Raging In The Dancehall (Vertile Remix) Vertile - The New Normal D-Sturb feat Alee - Party At My Place (Vertile Remix) Vertile - Change This Place Adaro - Flame Up High (Vertile Remix/Supremacy Edit) Vertile - Stronger (Kick Edit) Vertile - Not My Affection (Kick Edit) Gunz For Hire - Ongedierte Van De Nacht I am a sucker for Vertile's music! I cannot get enough, and multiple times during the week I have to listen to his songs. I even tried to get his music played at my wedding, but the wedding DJ probably thought it was a tad too rough. It would have been me on my own on the dancefloor, but oh how much fun I would have had. Who cares about an angry wife? I just love the atmosphere in the video: everyone is just having a great time! Hands in the air, and only a handful of mobile devices in the air. More hands than mobile phones in the air, and that's the way it should be. And the people singing along to the songs... goosebumps. Smiles for miles, but also excellent music. Every time I hear a Vertile set, I always discover new music, and I always find a newer 'best Vertile' track. And in this Supremacy set it has to be 'Eyes Open'. What a fucking anthem! This style is just what gives me the energy and brings a huge smile on my face. This is Rawstyle the way I like it. A fantastic set, and hopefully the Dutch will be able to party again like before the lockdown. Yes, the 'new' normal is one of Vertile's tracks and suits 2020-2021, but fuck it, let's change the normal back to how it was. 2022 will be a glorious year, and we should give Vertile a bigger stage, and have him play not an opening set. He deserves so much more. Ps. I love the footage taken from behind the DJ. The video is shaking so vividly... just what most of us are missing now. Shaking grounds, fists in the air, and banging music. Fuck COVID. Maybe one tiny side note: stop touching the flanger. Not needed.
